ENERGY LANDSCAPES IN BORON CHEMISTRY: BOTTOM-TOP APPROACH TOWARDS DESIGN OF NOVEL MOLECULAR ARCHITECTURES
Josep M. Oliva
Instituto de Quimica-Fisica "Rocasolano" (CSIC)
Boron chemistry does not have the parallel of carbon chemistry or organic chemistry. However, the peculiar electronic configuration of boron involves a rich variety of different interactions which emerge as a voyage between the world of organic, inorganic and metal chemistry. In particular, we report on reaction mechanisms and properties of monomeric, dimeric and other (hetero)borane clusters in their ground and excited electronic states, as a base for prediction of properties of more complex boron-based molecular higher architectural constructs.
